Very inspirational!
He writes about so many techniques to capture the elusive figure with energy
and keep it so interesting.
Great illustrations using various media.
Loved it! Even if you have attended many figure drawing sessions, you will appreciate the gestures that capture what the model is doing rather than just a lovely visual. Check it out.
